Finally got a chance to try on my AAUs. I’m going to do my best at an unbiased review:

- Fit is ok. Not the best, not the worst. Strictly on fit, Eric Emanuel is better (logos are another discussion)
- I don’t have much flare, but I opted for the smaller of the two sizes I ordered, making them a little more fitted.
- Like others have mentioned, the rise is a little short if you have and sort of lower half.
- Biggest complaint: the lining is a snag magnet. My lining already had snags in it out of the bag similar to another users posting, albeit not as bad. Probably fine for the leg liner, but absolutely absurd to use that silky fabric for the pocket lining. Keys will shred it in under a minute. Frankly, I don’t think these pockets will be usable after a couple wears.

Net, nice shorts. I’ll be keeping them as I like the color. Not worth $172 for made in China mesh shorts when the fit isn’t really that differentiated and can’t see the lining holding up. I’d say $89 is probably more in line with the product and quality, but if they’re selling, they’re selling.
I agree with this. I like mine and will keep them, but I do like the EE fit a bit more.

That was me. I fortunately received an approval to return the pair. I'm keeping the grey pair, but you're accurate on the lining issues. The material simply doesn't appear durable and there should either not be any pockets or the pocket lining should perhaps be a more traditional mesh like the exterior in order to increase durability, especially as you don't see it any way. It was a very poor design choice overall.

I get that longevity wise its an issue but the liner being added to the pockets definitely adds a luxurious touch

My shorts and runners finally came. Love them both.

I’m in the UK and it cost a lot to get them here and there’s a problem on my runners.

The toe box cotton stitching has come away on one of the shoes.

Those trainers are utterly poxy.

And as for the “quality”! You paid, what, over £500 with tax etc for those?

Madness

Around £350 they ended up being. Still should be absolutely perfect though for that money.

I dunno how the hell that gets through QC lol that's appalling.

Having said that, I think you're just setting yourself up for disappointment if you expect some sort of proportional increase in 'quality' with increase in price with these brands.

I hate when a brand's customer service gives a response like this due to a mistake on their end or a defective product. "you can also just deal with it even though you paid full price" that's lame.

Got my YLCo Nylon Joggers in the other day. Only got the chance to put it on for a pic and see how they fit.

pants itself are pretty nice and I like the fit going TTS. One issue I have is that it’s a struggle to even get it onto my waist as the waistband isn’t all that stretchy so it gets stuck on my thighs. Should have sized up but it sucks they don’t do any exchanges.

put on my moon grey Uni to make it JE related

what do you guys think about the fit?
